It used to be so easy. You went with your raw courage of conviction to calculate the right path. The winning game. 

Learning more about life, you got more counsel on things from both sides of an issue. Lucky you were if you could see the middle ground of each and combine them for a solution. Aristotle understood this wisdom calling it the Golden Ratio, also known as the Mean Ratio. 

Through the ages the concept has been applied to large systems and unique situations in architecture, nature, business and art to find a way forward.

Today, the sides are so much farther apart on the important questions of our times. The world far more complex, the calculation of solutions so much harder. 

Still there is the art and beauty of trying to find solutions and the satisfaction of the wisdom learned along the way…
